Being Alone

I am alone,

but not by choice.

I am sad,

despite all the joys.

No one to tell about my day

before I sleep.

No one to share with,

the darkest secrets I keep.

I feel like a vulture,

looking to satisfy its hunger,

but even after I try all I get is,

other people’s (love) leftovers.

I hope tomorrow will be better,

than the day before,

and someone helps me escape this lonely room

by opening the door.

I am alone,

but not by choice.

I am sad,

despite all the joys.
